FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) - UConn coach Jim Calhoun has undergone successful surgery to repair a left hip fracture from a bicycle accident.

The 70-year-old Calhoun was cycling near his summer home in Madison on Saturday when he hit sand and fell, hours before he was to coach some former players in a charity game.

Calhoun broke several ribs in an accident during a charity bicycle ride in 2009.

Calhoun has led Connecticut to three NCAA titles. Several Huskies were back in the state Saturday to participate in the Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic game.
